What did Gerard Pique have to say about the Telecinco program ending?

Recently, the Telecinco program announced that it would be shutting down its operations. The reality show in the limelight is Salvame. The 14-year-old reality television program will air one final time on June 16. Interestingly, Pique is quite popular on several programs on Telecinco. While his personal life has been on fire, these programs were sometimes sources of inside information on his life.

From the looks of it, the soccer veteran was more than happy for the show to end. In an ironic tone, he said, “We have made Salvame end”. He then went on to speak about the harsh truths of the television show. He continued, “It’s indecent what they do in that program and it’s all a lie, for society it’s better that it ends”, as compiled by Marca and translated by Google Translate.

After season one of the Kings League, Pique and Llanos were looking for a television broadcasting partner. Over everything, the soccer veteran decided to agree on a deal with Mediaset. In relation to the same, the After Kings panel tried to connect it with Salvame coming to an end. The 36-year-old immediately barged in, “That it is over does not seem bad to me”.

While confirming that Salvame’s end had nothing to do with the Mediaset deal, let’s dive deeper into Pique’s overall success with the Kings League.

Even though they did not have the biggest sponsors, the FC Barcelona legend cashed out a $3 million profit at the end of season one. Shockingly, the fans also sold-out Camp Nou for the ‘final four’ of this competition. Apart from the new Queens League, Pique also plans on starting the Brazilian edition of the Kings League while already having the likes of Ronaldinho and Neymar Jr on board.
